Question from Nick Makey: Are Native Promises A+ compliant? I still had trouble finding a definitive answer but the polyfill I mentioned in the talk is a subset of RSVP.js which is compliant.

Another question from Nick Makey: What's wrong with Jquery Promises Exactly? I didn't have a really detailed answer in the talk, but this post gives a good rundown and several examples.
